Bio Photo NOTE: ~ ~ Please send corrections and or updates; I want things to be accurate! As one "graver" said about Find A Grave, "Those who think it is only for locating graves have a narrow imagination."

Remember........."That which you share, multiplies and divides. That which you withhold, diminishes and dies." W. Clement Stone

~ The unfolding history revealed during research of families is so interesting, fascinating, but sometimes tragically sad, causing one to wish they had studied history more astutely and to have listened to stories told by our elders when young ~

I'm most interested in helping Nancy Brewer, aka "I remember when", in her effort on Find A Grave to recognize the pioneers and builders of my home town of Carthage, Missouri.

SPECIAL NOTATION: Find A Grave has choosen to transfer hundreds of memorials to me in Oswego cemetery, Oswego, Labette county, Kansas, of which the vast majority are yours if you so request via "EDIT"! ~ ~ NOTE ~ ~ Find A Grave elected (?) to REMOVE thousands of original contributors photos and rename Mary, "Anonymous" affecting mostly southern Kansas-Missouri areas, so as of late April 2013, these memorials are without her photos and name, but most, still available for transfer by myself and others! Contributor Margaret is dedicated to re-photograph this cemetery, as her time permits and furnish local historical group copies for their records.

In another case, but a different contributor in Arkansas, some 60,000 to 80,000 memorials have been DELETED from Find A Grave, WITHOUT twice requested explanation from FAG!

~ Visit my Websites. ~

NOTE: Several contributors have allowed me to update their memorials by transferring to me then upon completion I return them, ~ ~ if they so desire.

Would also enjoy your comments, corrections, and would dearly love to be given all of my relatives and dearest friends of whom I've deeply researched on Find A Grave which are created by others.

I am a retired civil engineer (raised in Carthage, Missouri(ah) till 1944), with at least three known 3rd g,grandfathers veterans of Revolutionary War, one 2nd g,grandfather (served two years) & two g,grandfathers veterans of the Civil War with father a veteran of WW I, my brother & myself, veterans of WW II, ~ ~ who well over ten years ago was given a WebTv and have since enjoyed setting in my easy chair in Naples, (until November 2006 with moved 35 miles north to Shell Point Village near Sanibel Island, Lee county, Florida), doing genealogy on it till it went out of business 30 SEP 2013, when my 79 websites were transferred by Pris Weathers to host site, so now I'm using a computer.

On 25th May 2010, became oldest in my paternal Boggess line, for thirteen generations, to at least the 16th century, when becoming older than our veteran of the Revolutionary War, Samuel Boggess (1742-1825), with only my maternal great,grandfather, John A Flora, having lived around three years longer as of this writing.

Family lines of most interest to me:
FLORA, Hagee, Shults/z, Wallick.
BOGGESS, Knight, Luke, Robinson, Wood.

Also included among my "Memorials" are all, including 9 blood related, with only 15 listed by others, within this 1964 abandoned Methodist church one acre cemetery we restored in 2004, ie: Point Pleasant

Well in excess of a hundred blood and/or shirt-tail relatives, including a 17-1/2 y/o Burmese cat, have been transferred for my management (one, deleted because she is living) and have transferred hundreds to others. Several others, mostly by mega-number holders are with incorrect information, will NOT correct or stubbornly withheld from me, and refuse to add family links and/or bios. I would like very much to gain management of all my family's Memorials plus those of special interest, on Find A Grave and I'm most ready to share with others.

Several memorials with inactive contributors, have been transferred to me which now have biographies and family links added, helping other researchers. PLEASE NOTE: Should a link NOT open, simply change "org" within link to "net"!

Many cohorts throughout the states have helped me by sharing family information, pictures, etc for my many booklets which were freely distributed to libraries, universities, historical groups, family members, etc and now my many web-sites with documented information of those researched that are related, some by only a thread.

Much of my research is also filed in some twenty or more states with USGenWeb archives, (should the link NOT open, change "org" within link to "net") and some on Pris Weathers wonderfull website and also found on my Amarillo (formerly of Graham), Texas friend's Worldconnect tree, some of which I have used for Find A Grave memorials, search his index for name: Daryl

Thank you for the info about Daniel Dyer and the link to Kansas City. Even though he is no relation to me, I hope someone will claim him.
Thanks Kathi

RE: J C Rogers
I added the parents and transferred the memorial to you. Let me know if you need any others.

#128236367 is a duplicate of #128236601. Thank you very much for creating his memorial -- I can see both were created by you.

RE: Mount Hope Cemetery
I don't know that much about the mausoleums. Nancy photographed most of them. I haven't been in any of them. As far as the history goes, I only know what is in the little booklet about Mount Hope.

RE: Richardson
Thank you so much! Will update my info.
All is well here. We've been traveling and have found quite a bit of family history about both of our family trees.

Take care!!!

Bill, if you could ask Bob at for the plot locations of the Deans that you have a request in for, I will find them for you. (Also, if you could get the location for William Winter Dean, I will go back and take a better picture.) I have emailed Bob a lot the last couple of weeks, and I don't want to bother him again so soon! Thanks!

It was my pleasure finding the grave marker. I had a few more pictures of the headstone that I was not able to post and was wondering if you were interested in them. The ones I posted show the inscription the best, the rest sort of capture the surrounding area.

I transferred Roland & his wife, Caroline. I also transferred an R.T. Rombauer that is buried in a different grave than Roland. We do not know if the cemetery records have entered Roland twice or if there was a child or other family member buried there. Perhaps your research will clear up the mystery.

I do not need you to transfer them back to me. My goal is to find people to manage these memorials that know more about the person than I do. Thanks for researching Roland.
